Product Description
The TX100/200 series, adjustable insertion turbine flow meters, use ruby bearings and a non-drag pick-off to achieve a wide flow range and long life.  A sensor mounted in the body of the turbine flow meter detects the passage of miniature magnets in the rotor blades.  (Magnets are in 2 or 4 blades only.)  The resulting square-wave signal can be sent from the turbine flow meters for hundreds of feet without a transmitter, over unshielded cable.  This square wave signal can be sent directly to a PLC or other control, or can be converted using a blind 4-20mA output or flow rate and totalizer display. Designed for modularity and versatility, the TX100/200 series, adjustable insertion turbine flow meters, have a current-sinking pulse output, which can be combined with the appropriate transmitter or indicator depending on the application.  For rate and total display the FT415 or FT420 flow indicator can be mounted directly on the TX100/200 series adjustable insertion turbine flow meters or on a convenient wall.  For a 4-20mA analog output only, the AO55 blind 4-20mA converter can be mounted directly onto the turbine flow meter or onto a nearby wall.  If the TX100/200 series, adjustable insertion turbine flow meters, are being used with a programmable controller, the output signal can be fed direct with no other conditioning required. The installation fitting of the TX100/200 series adjustable turbine flow meter is standard 1-1/2 inch male NPT, and can be directly threaded into ordinary saddles or threaded weld fittings.  A depth adjustment system integrated into the design of the turbine flow meters allow two basic meter sizes to cover pipe sizes from 3 to 40 inches.
